Re: icons at top missing

Okay, I figured it out. At the top menu area (near where you see File, Edit Image, etc.) right-click the mouse - then select those menu bars that you'd like to have displayed. The attached screen capture shows all the items checked.

Many thank for the suggestions!

icons at top missing

Hi, I couldn't figure out how to turn on the toolbar icons. I've been searching within the IDE to find a way to turn on all the icons that are normally located along the top - but no luck thus far. Anyone know how to turn them back on? ( see attached screen capture ) I'm using version 0.18 and runni...

emboss/engrave text question

I've successfully engraved/embossed text onto step files before. I’ve gotten good results following this excellent YouTube tutorial https://youtu.be/_D5WJqd1SSE . Today, I’ve experienced an odd shifting of the main body to be engraved/embossed - just as did a Boolean subtract ( subtracting the extru...

Re: Sweep Imported DXF

Okay, I figured out a work flow. I don't know if this was the best approach - but I got something working. First I imported a DXF which had been drawn in another CAD program. When importing a DXF, FreeCAD will create a separate shape for every segment of the DXF ( the DXF that I imported is a contin...

Re: Coordinate System Askew

Okay, I fixed it. From the Draft workbench I changed the working plane from Auto to XY and then back to Auto. See screen capture.

Angular Deflection seems unrelated to this issue.

Coordinate System Askew

I've done this before and when it would happen I'd just delete the whole project and start again. This time I can't do that - since I've spent over 8 hours on this project. In the screen capture you see a white rectangle - this is a sketch in the XY plane. In the background you see some type of coor...

Re: merge sketches

Is this feature still available in version 0.18? If so, where is the "merge sketches" button?

EDIT:
Found it.
From Sketcher Workbench Sketch --> Merge Sketches
